Understanding the pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes

Use a case-cohort study, identifying cases through the EHS system and confirming through a variety of clinical laboratory tests. We know little about the genetic basis of T1D in African-ancestry (non-white) populations or T1D with onset in adulthood, These data would also provide insights on the rates and types of complications that may differ between adult-onset T1D and childhood-onset T1D.
